This morning I awoke feeling extensively ambitious, but instead of tackling a household project solo that would ultimately turn into a week long ordeal. I decided to call the professional electricians at 5 Star Electric. Upon calling 5 Star I was greeted by the incredibly helpful Courtney who swiftly scheduled an appointment for that same day. That afternoon Bruce arrived on time with an exact plan for the installation of the LED can lights and ceiling fans I wanted. He measured and mapped out everything perfectly and listened to precisely what I wanted and offered advice on upgrades such as dimmers, switches, LED lights and even the fan. After quickly gathering the required materials Bruce was joined by a fellow electrician Heston. As a team they quickly tarped all my furniture and prepped the room for the install. In no time at all my used-to-be dim-lit and stuffy living room was bright and fresh air circulated. The entire install and cleanup was completed before the Misses returned home from work. I even contemplated taking all the credit, but my conscious got the best of me and I had to get on here and give huge props to the team at Five Star Electric. Great customer service, value and expertise. Thanks so much Courtney, Bruce and Heston. The name says it all 5 Star service, will certainly be a repeat customer.
In June of 2016 5 Star Electric replaced an old 100 amp electrical panel at my rental in San Luis Obispo in a timely manner. Bruce coordinated with PG&E, secured required local permits and insured the work passed city inspection. Being that I do not live in California Bruce kept me up to date via email and phone calls on all aspects of the project and supplied pictures of the completed project. This is the third electrical project that 5 Star Electric has completed at my house. As always Bruce is friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I would recommend 5 Star Electric to anyone seeking excellent electrical services. Comment from 2014: Bruce arrived for our appointment on time and within an hour identified a bad circuit and restored power. Bruce also pointed out really old wiring that is not up to code and is a safety issue. Bruce took steps to abandon those circuits that he deemed a fire hazard. Bruce provided a bid to fix the wiring issues in a timely manner. Bruce and his crew did an excellent job bringing our electrical wiring up to current standards.
Very impressed with this Company. I had someone come to look at the job on a Monday and they were ready to fit me in the following day! I waited till that Friday, it being my choice.Unfortunately I was unable to be there since we live out of town. I had my interior decorator there to instruct them where and how far chandeliers were to be hung (two) one being about 40lbs that was to be hung above a stair landing. Once the chandeliers were hung, she could not speak highly enough of the two men that did the work. She said she would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a great electrician. I have had several people come to give estimates but they have never returned calls, I can only assume the job was a difficult one.This was the only company that seemed to be confident enough and not lazy to do the job. They did a great job cleaning up afterwards as well. Great work, very happy customer. Thank You !!!!!
I was adding new lighting to an extra bedroom which I have done previously, however, the wiring on this job was a little more difficult than expected. It was mid week after 4:00 p.m,when I made a call to 5 Star Electric. I was only expecting to leave a message and maybe get a return call for an appointment the next day. To my surprise, within minutes, I received a return call from Bruce. He was finishing up a job and heading back in my direction and moments later literally, he was knocking at my door. Within a few minutes Bruce ascertained the problem I was having. About one hour later the job that I was struggling with was complete. Bruce was friendly, courteous and professional. Also, I have never received that rapid a response from any contractor in the past! I give a big thumbs up to :5 Star Electric. Jim & Shannon Cox
Here is why you should go with 5 Star Electric, as I see it: 1. Bruce gives a proper diagnosis (which was key to getting some coverage from my home warranty insurance) 2. Work is done with proper parts & labor, no cheap shortcuts 3. Cost of job was exactly as proposed in the estimate 4. Very minimal modification was done on my rooftop 5. Gave me option of a cheaper or better repair job, rather than pushing the more expensive job 6. Work was done on schedule, and on time 7. Staff (Courtney) worked with me to get this all done on my preferred dates 8. It is VERY DIFFICULT to find a contractor at a beach community who will show up on time, finish the job, and meet all of your expectations--5 Star did all of this. 5 Star Electric will be my recommendation for anyone needing an electrical contractor
Bruce has done two jobs for us at our home in Los Osos. When we first moved in he came out in less than 24 hours to install a ceiling fan. It was a warm day and he had to crawl through a very small attic door to get to the job but was always happy and smiling. In the end he came in under the price of the original bid! We just recently had Bruce and Tom out to install tract lighting in our living room. They did the job in record time and it has made a HUGE improvement in the space and the conduit etc are barely even noticeable. Great work and very friendly to even allow us to keep a tall ladder of theirs for a week to complete some painting we did on the job. I recommend the team to anyone doing any level of job, great company.
Excellent contractor - scheduled estimate visit quickly and arrived on time. Estimate arrived within an hour via email. Work to install an outlet for electric vehicle charging (NEMA 14-50) was scheduled for a few days later. Once again arrived at the time promised. Work was done efficiently and neatly by Tommy and Bruce, working with me to place junction box and outlet where I wanted them. Drywall removed for access was done so carefully it was easy to reinstall the removed piece and tape and texture. Best of all was after the job was completed, the original invoice was SIGNIFICANTLY reduced based on fewer than expected hours and less material used. Building inspection the next day was a breeze.
Wow! From start to finish, Bruce has been incredibly professional, helpful, and a delight to work with! I sent out three requests for bids to local electricians, and not only was Bruce the only person who responded, but he replied within 24 hours and gave me great information at the start. His bid was entirely reasonable, and the work was done quickly - he even submitted the paperwork for the permits! I feel as if I received 5 Star treatment for sure, and everything works great. They even left the garage in better condition than they found it after the work was done! I highly recommend this company!
Heston was not only on time for our appointment, he called first and was actually early! Unheard of! I knew then we were off to a good start. He quickly pinpointed the troublesome/broken areas that needed fixing and efficiently set to work. Within an hour the GFI outlet, the porch light and the office light switch were all working again!. To top this all off, he was professional, pleasant and obviously qualified to be working on the electrical system on our house. If I ever need help with something electrical in my home again I will call 5 Star. Thanks, Heston, Bruce and Courtney!
I passed my electrical inspection! Thanks to Bruce, my electrical inspection went smooth, like a hot knife through butter. Everything went exactly as Bruce said it would. Bruce wired everything up, checked all of the work I had done on my own, and he gave me helpful hints and advice all along the way. This was my second experience with Bruce. I liked his work ethic and his personable nature, so calling him the second time, when I really needed him was an easy decision. Thanks Bruce, you made it easy for me to sleep at night, no worries, everything right.
Bruce of 5 Star Electric provided friendly outstanding service. He showed up promptly, assessed the electrical work that needed to be done after I outlined what needed attention. He offered an alternate solution in one case to eliminate an arcing problem in an outside outlet which i grealtly appreciated. He completed the work in a timely manner and billed a fair price. I highly recommend 5 Star Electric to resident owners that need the type of services 5 Star Electric advertises.
5 Star Electric is truly 5 star! Electrician was polite and came early with my permission. He was in and out and very professional. I specified to Courtney that email was the best way to reach me to schedule an appointment and she was kind enough to humor me. We ultimately set our time via phone but it was great to keep in touch along the way via email. I would definitely use these guys again for any other needs that come up. THANK YOU!
We had electrical issues on Presidents Day which affected many of our appliances including our refrigerator. All of the county was experiencing power outages because of the severe weather. Bruce came out when we called that day and diagnosed the problem with skill and efficiency. He returned later with the part needed to fix the whole side of our house that was powerless. He is professional and pleasant. Thanks so much.
Tommy and Ian did a great job installing a handful of light fixtures in our home, both new lights that required running wire to new places and basic replacement fixtures. Bruce helped troubleshoot some mystery wiring, also fixing a ceiling fan situation, making it more convenient to operate. The guys were very courteous, clean, and personable. Would heartily recommend Bruce and his guys for any electric work.
I was impressed when the owner actually answered my call. It was great to talk to Bruce and scheduled an appointment instead of talking to a secretary and having to wait all day for a call back. Tom showed up right on time and was friendly and easy to interact with when asking questions about the electrical problem. I was satisfied with their service and I would recommend it to others.
I needed an electrician to help me with my kitchen lighting. Bruce came on time and was very helpful from the get go. He was able to repair the lighting fixture and replace some GFI plugs. He did a great job, was reasonable priced, and did a very professional job. I would definitely use him again. He also gave me some great tips on new lighting for my kitchen. Thanks.
i had a light switch which was in a VERY inconvenient place. Asked if it could be moved and I always got the answer that changing location was complicated and expensive. Well, lucky me. The 5 Star team of Tommy and Ian came in and changed the switch location easy peasy. They were friendly, profession and left the site clean. The bill was reasonable and I am happy! Thanks
Bruce from 5 Star Electric was fantastic. He worked diligently to figure out and remedy an electrical problem. He tracked down discontinued parts that we needed and carefully explained to me what he was doing and why. I was also very impressed with his sense of esthetics and really appreciated his help in making sure everything looked right in the end.
Called them on an emergency job where we were under the impression that their was a severed connection between the pole and the home. 5 Star electric walked us through the protocol and was able to get to the home on a very busy stormy Friday. It was a pleasure working with such a professional and the electronic invoicing is really convenient.
Bruce was excellent! He is wonderful to work,very knowledgable and thorough.I would highly recommend him. He showed up when he said he would, rearranged his schedule to solve my problem, which turns out to be way more complicated then expected. He diligently did everything he could to fix it and was successful!
Bruce came to our house to repair a bad outlet. He was on time (actually, a little early which was great), extremely knowledgeable and courteous, and fixed the problem very quickly and efficiently...all at a very reasonable cost! I would highly recommend his services to anyone who needs a great electician.
